Hybrid App Development

Hybrid App Development Service

Hybrid apps are made of a combination of HTML5 (web-oriented) code and native (device-oriented) code. They are built with the use of HTML5, CSS and Javascript, and they are then run in a container that ensures that these hybrid apps can be installed in This makes them often a cheaper option to develop than native apps. The reason for this is that you only need one source code to develop a hybrid app for both iOS and Android, while on the other hand if you want to create a native app for both operating systems,, you need to write two different source codes. A hybrid app can also be uploaded to an app store without prior approval. A disadvantage of using hybrid apps is that they are usually not well-suited to run apps with heavy graphics, like games. Creating an app like this also requires a broad range of skills. Hybrid apps are on average also a little slower than native apps. Luckily we are experienced in creating both hybrid and native apps. So if you want to develop an app and you want our advise which choice to make, then please contact us now! Below you can see the five hybrid app frameworks which we specialize in:

Xamarin is a software company which is owned by Microsoft. It’s app codebase has rapidly become popular over the past years with it’s C# programming language. It’s got it’s own testing software to mimick user behavior. A large number of companies, some of which well-known, have made their apps with the use of Xamarin. Some of these apps are even made for banking or medical purposes.


Phonegap (now also known as Apache Cordova) is a hybrid app development framework which is available as an open source software. An advantage of Phonegap is that you can upload your codes to the Adobe Phonegap Build cloud and Phonegap will actually compile the codes for you. Thanks to this cloud, cooperation in making an app like this is easier, which speeds up development and makes it easier to create larger apps.


Ionic is an open source app framework which designs a standard development kit (SDK) for the development. A tool that makes development easier and faster is the Ionic Creator, which provides drag and drop functionality. Recent versions of Ionic make use of AngularJS, which makes it faster than most of the other hybrid app development frameworks. Other advantages are the extensive documentation and the large amount of standard functions.


Appcelerator Titanium is an open source mobile app development framework which is widely used. Estimates are that 10% of all smartphones worldwide run apps that are built with the use of Titanium. When using it in combination with alloy, you can follow the Model-View-Controller principle, where the user interface and the business logic are separated. For even better performance and functionality, we can also arrange for an enterprise version of this framework.


Sencha Touch is a user-interface Javascript library created for hybrid app development. Just like Titanium, Sencha Touch also follows the Model View Controller (pattern) to separate view from business logic. This makes it easier to control and maintain large scale apps. It includes a number of user interface controls, such as buttons, forms, datepickers, sliders, selectors, toolbars, icons and more, which makes it easier to develop an app with this framework.
